lunch at the mikado

We (three of us) had lunch yesterday at the Mikado, located near the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon. It was terrific. We started with Gyoza, which were excellent. My only quibble is why restaurants seem to insist on serving five rather than six. I guess visually it is more interesting, but whether it's two or three people sharing, there's gonna be a food fight for the last one. gyoza were 4.95, i believe. we all had the house chard, which was fine, and six bucks each. Deeann had a chicken dish (can't remember the name) which was basically chicken teriyaki served with rice and excellent vegetable tempura. A very generous serving. I think it was 6.95. Di had a bento box, which offers two choices out of salmon, chicken, and shrimp tempura. Comes with a delicious version of miso soup, quite different than the usual rendition. The salad, very generously proportioned, was good. She chose the salmon and chicken and was very happy. I think the cost was nine bucks, maybe ten. i chose the shrimp tempura appie, with a side of rice. i love rice and this was great (I know, who raves about rice? well, i do) the dish came with three large shrimp and veggie tempura. it was first rate, and enough to serve as an entree. five bucks. Because I lost out on the odd gyoza, i had also ordered another round, but ended up not eating any because i was so full from the tempura.
the space is fun, good noise level but lively. service was a bit slow, but the waiter was friendly. I know they have some kind of happy hour deal re: appies which i did a few times last year, but cant remember the details. don't know if prices are the same in the park city location or downtown, but i'll definitely be back to this location. btw, the sushi going out to other tables looked great.
